It portrays all that stands on the battle field, connoting a hard-fought victory that is straight from a legendary ‘story book’.
There are dragons all around and a baby fire-breather is perched on his arm, with two giant creatures loom behind his throne, and another flying in the sky.

D’banj who released his debut album ‘No Long Thing’ as a professional artiste in 2005, has strived to remained relevant in the fast-growing and competitive Nigerian music industry.

He was signed to artist of Mo’ Hits Records, and was also a member of its collective group, Mo’ Hits Allstars, a group that included artists Dr SID, Wande Coal, KaySwitch, and D’Prince.
On leaving Mo Hits Records, D’banj founded DB Records and signed his younger brother Kayswitch to the label alongside two producers, Jaysleek and Deevee.

The ‘Fall in Love’ crooner has won several music awards, including the awards for Best African Act at the MTV Europe Music Awards 2007, Artist of the Year at the MTV Africa Music Awards 2009.
